Scaling Crosshairs

Sorry if this is a repeat topic but couldn't find it anywhere.

I would very much like the crosshair markers (0-10) to scale along with the zoom.

Instead of the scale always reading 0~10, the markers change according to zoom level so that 1 unit always equals a fixed amount of distance.

This would considerably aid aiming while zooming in and out.

I have misfired many salvos because "10" wasn't "10"

 

In the meantime is there currently a mod that will do this?

Thanks!

Actually thinking about lead calculation (see this topic) I really think the current fixed scale sights are very confusing ~ especially in conjunction with target tracking.  What the scale should actually show is direction of aim (degrees from north). This would not change between zoom levels and the scale would move as your sights automatically rotate with target tracking showing you exactly what is going on rather than having ships suddenly go from stationary to warp 9 as target tracking is turned on and off.

I mostly use max zoom, so I don't encounter that issue very often. The only time I have to zoom out is at very close ranges, especially against fast DDs, but at such ranges I can normally eyeball it well enough without having to even look at the scales.
